Liverpool announce club record revenue for 2021/22 financial period

Liverpool recorded a club record revenue of £594m across the 2021/22 period up to the end of May.

The Reds’ first season in the post-pandemic/lockdown era was largely a successful one, winning both domestic cups and coming within two victories of an unprecedented quadruple.

It was a fruitful year for Liverpool off the pitch, too. The club announced on Tuesday that they recorded a pre-tax profit of £7.5m, bringing in £594m in revenue – a £107m increase on the previous year.

In terms of total revenue, the only clubs in the world to record more over the same period were Real Madrid (£605m) and Manchester City (£619m).

With fans able to attend matches again, matchday revenue rose by £83m to £86m – only Tottenham (£106m) and Manchester United brought in more among Premier League sides.

Liverpool’s commercial revenue rose by £29m to £247m – largely in part due to a new agreement with Nike – though administrative costs also went up by by £69m to £545m.

The club’s media revenue fell by £5m to £261m though this is due to the prolonged ending of the 2019/20 Premier League season behind closed doors being factored into previous figures.

Liverpool’s wage bill rose by nearly 17% from £314m to £366m, with Jordan Henderson, Harvey Elliott, Andy Robertson, Alisson Becker, Stefan Bajcetic and Diogo Jota signing new contracts and seven new players being added to the first-team squad in that period.
